Mangaluru, 13 Apr 2021: Due to inclement weather, a flight from Dubai which was to land at the international airport here had to be diverted to Kochi.


The director of Kochi International Airport, A C K Nair, clarified that the Dubai-Mangaluru Air India flight was to land at Mangaluru international airport. As the climate at Mangaluru was not conducive for its landing, the flight changed its path and landed at Kochi, he stated.


The flight with 118 passengers was expected to touch down at Bajpe airport, Mangaluru, at 12.30 am on Tuesday April 13. But because of the fact that Mangaluru and surrounding areas were having thunderstorms then; the flight could not land as scheduled. It was diverted to Kochi.


The coastal belt has been experiencing cloudy weather with rain coupled with thunder at night since the last two days. Due to the drop in air pressure in the coastal and Malnad regions, clouds have formed. The meteorological department has issued a yellow alert till April 16 because of the possibility of heavy rainfall in coastal Karnataka.
